After being diagnosed with hiv VL:102879 T4:1032/ that was in November, just had blood work done last week, don't have the results as yet, but my blood sugar was over 500, went to the emergency room for treatment, and have been keeping tabs on it till my next Dr, visit, I am told that I now have adult onset diabetes, is this a result of hiv?

Response from Dr. Pierone

Adult onset diabetes is not the result of HIV infection. We see diabetes in people with HIV infection that are treated with protease inhibitors but this seems not to apply to your situation. Good luck!

when to start treatment?
Reyetaz, videx, tenofovir
